David Seymour: Hate speech law confusion typical of the Government – Seymour tells HDPA


Yet so many still think Ardern can do no wrong.

June 28,2021

ACT Party leader David Seymour told Heather du Plessis-Allan that the number one thing about a law is clarity so people know how to follow it and what the consequences are.

“If the person making the law can’t work it out, what hope do the police, courts or poor old citizens who just want to follow it have?”

He says that the use of the word ‘insulting’ in the discussion document shows how out of their depth the officials are. 

Seymour says it is typical of the Government. 

“They have this notion of what sounds good and what’s announceable and marketable. Under the hood, the workings are a mystery to them.”
